In this case, the Company remains responsible for the protection of your data – in addition, the processor may also be responsible. The service provider works strictly in accordance with our instructions, which we ensure by means of strict contractual regulations, technical and organizational measures and supplementary controls.

    The Company works with service providers as processors. These are Group companies of the Company and service providers for IT services (e.g. for technical-administrative tasks and for usage analysis), book keeping services, telecommunications, consulting and advisory services as well as sales and marketing.

    The data protection regulations for instruction-bound order processing of personal data are complied with.

    Beyond this, we do not transfer data to third parties unless you have given your express consent, the transfer is obviously necessary for the provision of an offer or service requested by you or this is provided for by law. We also do not intend to transfer your data beyond this to a third country or international organization.
